Beathard opens M&T shows

Wednesday, September 23, 2015 – Label mate Tucker Beathard was picked by Maddie & Tae to open their tour next month.

The 12-city tour kicks off at New York City's Highline Ballroom on Oct. 7.

Beathard, a Dot Records artist and Big Machine Music writer, is a drummer, guitarist and vocalist, who's opened shows for Eric Church, Keith Urban and Miranda Lambert. Beathard, 20, is currently working on his debut album. He is the son of songwriter Casey Beathard, who has songs recorded by Tim McGraw and Church.

"I have been on the road in a van all summer driving around the country with my band playing shows in clubs and at festivals," said Beathard. "I got into music because I love writing songs, so it'll be fun to switch gears this fall and really focus on lyrics, performing with nothing but an acoustic guitar. Maddie & Tae are unbelievably generous to invite me out with them. I'm really looking forward to getting to know them better. I have so much respect for them."

When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Carlile goes from excellent to memorable musical event – The last time Brandi Carlile came through town, she was promoting 2018's "By the Way, I Forgive You," which would deservedly go on to win the 2019 Grammy Award for Best Americana Album. This time out, Carlile performed fewer songs from that strong effort, which amounted to a more well-rounded live overview of her career to date.... »»»
Concert Review: Tuttle does well by coming home – Molly Tuttle has won kudos for her acoustic guitar playing. So much so that she's captured the IBMA award for Guitarist of the Year, the first female to win that acclaim from the bluegrass organization.
